Fun Place to Work
Operations and Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 25, 2014
Pros: discount on merchandise, seeing new merchandise as it came out.

This was a good place to work, meeting new people everyday. I liked helping people find what was just right for them. My coworkers were nice and I enjoyed training people.

Challenging to create schedules to try and benefit everyone.

Day in the life of working retail
Cash Rep Lead/ Sales Associate (Current Employee), Winter Garden, FLMarch 25, 2014
A typical day at VS involves greeting, and helping customers. I am usually behind the cash register so my main job is to check the customers out. I make sure they enjoyed their shopping experience and that they were properly informed of the deals and specials taking place in the store. My favorite part of the job is being able to increase customer knowledge – more... on our brand and what it means. The management is very easy to talk to, and they are very helpful with any questions I ever have. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unhappy customers, I dislike when I am unable to do something to make my customer happy. – less

Extremely productive and comfortable work environment
Cash Wrap Associate (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMarch 24, 2014
Pros: great energy, cute clothes, funny customers, location
Cons: short breaks, crowded break room
What I've enjoyed the most in my two years at Victoria's Secret is the equilibrium between productivity and fun. It is the only place where you can feel the energy when you walk in and its the exact same way when you leave. Our managers are masters at their job, and extremely efficient teachers. Everyone is aware of their responsibilities and what standards – more... are required upon completion of every task. Most people get discouraged, or dread peak days when it comes to retail, but it's become one of my favorite things. Although theres a lot of commotion in the store, everyone has a common goal in mind: the customer and in between the chaos and numbers, we manage to bond a little more. – less

Fun and stressful work place.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), McLean, VAMarch 24, 2014
Pros: fun, exciting, discounts
Cons: short breaks, stress
Co workers were amazing. Made going to work fun and exciting! Management puts a lot of stress on you on making certain goals. Pay is horrible after working there for a while. Job gives you full time hours but no benefits but in the system consider you "Part Time"

Too competitive
Bra Specialist (Former Employee), Wayne, NJMarch 24, 2014
Too competitive.. and too much drama with the management, although its been quite a while since I've worked there.. so maybe the company has changed. You do however get a lot of free things... its perfect if you are 18/19 and just need a PT job!

Its fun working with customers
Sales Associate (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 23, 2014
Pros: schedule, pay rate and the closing
Cons: no cons
I love talking to customers. It makes time go fast and you learn a lot about a person. I like to listen, connect and inspire the customer to make them feel comfortable around me. I learned a lot like how to interact with customers. My co workers are great and my managers are great they work with my schedule since I go to school.They are so understanding. – more... The one thing I really like is that when we close we leave exactly at 11, no matter what is the situation, it shows that they do care about us. – less

Very rude and unprofessional management
associate (Former Employee), Katy, TXMarch 21, 2014
Pros: always room to advance because people always quit
Cons: short breaks, unprofessional, rude, extremely low pay
Such an ugly work environment. Most of the management were so rude, fake, ugly, and unprofessional. They will pay you as little as possible and work you as hard as the can. They really don't care about the associates. JUST AWFUL

Exemplary Work Envirionment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Woodland Hills Mall, Tulsa, OKMarch 20, 2014
Pros: positive atmosphere, passionate co-workers
Working at Victoria's Secret challenges one to reevaluate their customer service skills. Though employees do not work on commission, we are enabled to be driven to provide exceptional customer experience on a deep and personal level. The company strives to excel not only in product but in customer satisfaction. It starts with the employers and managers, – more... who make their employees feel special and welcomed. From the first day of work, I knew that I could go to a job filled with kind people. What more is that we are all passionate about the company succeeding. There is very little about this job that can be seen as a disadvantage. – less

Fun place to woork, great discounts!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Chapel Hill Mall, Cuyahoga Falls OhioMarch 20, 2014
Pros: great discounts
Cons: some late hours sometimes
I loved working here. But this is before I had a mortgage to pay. I was in college so I loved my co-workers and I really enjoyed getting discounts at VS, Express, Banana Republic and such. Sometimes when we were switching displays or store layouts, we had to come in late like 10 or so and we'd be there for hours. but it was still fun.

STOCK ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Kennewick, WAMarch 19, 2014
Pros: free and/or highly discounted merchandise for employees
Cons: don't always get very many hours.
Typical day at work included restocking, processing shipment, cashiering, and cleaning the sales floor and back room. The management team is wonderful, incredibly motivational as well as supportive.

Sales associate (Former Employee), Clovis, CaMarch 17, 2014
Ringing up transactions for the products I would assist the customers in finding. At this company I learned the value of higher standards, and I have been holding myself to those standards ever since. My management and coworkers here were always there to help anytime I had a question. The hardest part of this job was the hours, the most enjoyable part – more... was the personal satisfaction I had in seeing the customers happy in what they had purchased. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMarch 17, 2014
I loved working at Victoria's secret. The atmosphere was fun and live. The employees that i got to know and work with were awesome and we created some life longs friendships. Being there on a typical day was interesting because the different types of customers and their needs were always different. Helping the customer find the perfect fit and or gift – more... was exciting to know that when they leave out of the store they were going to be satisfied. The hardest part of the job would have to be the clean up process and floor sets sometimes. – less
